About me: I love the city. Even the tourists – except when they stand on the left on Metro escalators. I can’t cook (and my idea of “cooking” involves preparing anything with two or more ingredients). But I can clean, which is important for a guy who lives in a 350-square-foot apartment with little room to hide slovenliness. If you’re looking for a guy who can tweet an instagram onto his blog, move on to the next profile; I have the technological acumen of a cinderblock. In fact, when I turn on my Apple TV (which I recently installed after only a seven-hour effort), my computer’s iTunes automatically starts playing Take On Me by A-Ha (I checked the manual’s “troubleshooting” section, but saw nothing about unexpected ‘80s hits). One of my most important professional goals is to win the weekly pushup contest we have at work. I love to race across intersections as the pedestrian “shot clock” winds down. In any event, I don't think I'm easily summarized -- or, at least, I'm not terribly good at summarizing myself.
Similarly, I'm not sure I'm looking for someone whose personality can be condensed into an internet "About Me" box. But I do understand that this is part of the process, so I'll do my best to convey some more of the basics. I have an unconventional perspective on things (so I've been told), I'm candid, creative, and articulate. I'm also motivated to improve myself professionally and personally, and I'd love to meet the right woman to share whatever the future holds (hopefully good things). My perfect match is herself not perfect, but is someone with whom I have a deep, special rapport. Finding someone with progressive values is very important to me. I tend to be attracted to intelligent women with strong personalities and who communicate well. And, of course, a good sense of humor is an absolute must. Finally, I'm looking for someone fairly active, and who lives in the city (sorry Arlington). "North Bethesda" means "Rockville." To reiterate and clarify: I'd like to meet someone in the city, and “the city,” as I define it, does not include Arlington, Bethesda (north or south), Alexandria, or, frankly, Georgetown. But if, somehow, after reading all of this, you actually think we might get along, please remember to take your meds – then definitely drop me a line.
